Review by Tom Allen
2 Stars out of 4

No one needs NFL Xtreme 2 when there's NFL Blitz, but still, this game isn't that bad. It has unfairly become the target of video game haters who believe gamers feed on violence and trash. NFL Xtreme 2's only draw is the nasty trash talk between players, but to say that this product shows the hypocrisy of the NFL is childish and ignorant.

Yes, the NFL prohibits disruptive antics during the game, but off the field, why not have a little fun? This is no different than players getting into an argument in a television interview. IT'S NOT IN THE GAME ITSELF, so who cares?

Critics need to lighten up. This isn't Jerry Springer. It's just a bunch of tight ends being silly and rude. God forbid.

Game play-wise, the game is hard on defense but easy on offense. Translation: You can't get by the defenders, but it's pretty easy to score. The plays aren't varied enough to be interesting, and you can't run the ball easily. I'm not sure you can stand all the trash talk through season, playoff, tournament, and exhibition modes.

More than 20 NFL players contributed voice-overs, including Terrell Davis, Antonio Freeman, Jimmy Smith, and cover boy John Randle.

Key features:

- arcade style, 5 on 5, open eligibility, no penalties
- three times as fast as NFL Xtreme
- all 31 NFL teams and stadiums
- celebrations include hand stands, back flips, break dancing, roundhouse kicks, and more
- ball carriers high-step, spin, hurdle, stiff-arm, and front flip over the pile
- bulky linemen and wispy DB's
- rain and snow environments
